In Spring 2017, Transport Focus calculated a 100% satisfaction score for the westbound services and 96% for the eastbound services. This made the westbound services one of the country's top two. By 2019, westbound had fallen to 84%, with eastbound on 90%.

As one of the newer service areas, Reading's two buildings are both build around an atrium, with south-facing windows. Over time this has been extended significantly with new retail units.

bp pulse electric vehicle charging points were installed here in 2020, but they are yet to be switched on. Further ultra-rapid chargers are planned for 2021.

During summer 2021, the former westbound external Costa kiosk was refurbished and rented out to Evapo Vape Shopwebsite.
